Washington, May 11 (PTI) Some US lawmakers would be shown the picture of the corpse of al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, who was shot dead last week by US special forces in Abbottabad in Pakistan, a media report said today.

The select group of US lawmakers ? mainly from the intelligence and armed services committees of the both chambers of the Congress - would be shown these pictures at CIA headquarters, the CNN said, adding that the timing has not been decided yet.

Last week, US President Barack Obama refused to make these pictures public arguing that this would harm America's national security interests.

"It is important for us to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence or as a propaganda tool. That's not who we are.
